shootings in aurora and columbine, as well as newtown, connecticut. on monday, the president travels to connecticut to continue this same campaign, and connecticut is a symbolic stop on this particular road trip, not just as the other state with a very recent nationally famous mass shooting. it is also part of the very exclusive club of states that are managing to take real, meaningful action on gun safety. a bipartisan task force agreed yesterday on the details of a major overhaul of the state's gun laws and brought the legislation to the floor to the voted on tonight. the measure would require background checks for private gun sales, it would expand the existing assault weapons ban to include 100 new types of military-style rifles as banned assault weapons, it would raise the age required to 18 to 21 and ban ammunition clips with more than ten bullets. if you already own the banned clips, you get to keep them but will have to register with the state police. judging from the local news interviews, there will be some people who already own them. that legislation just passed the state

, the connecticut senate passed a broad package of gun reform legislation. it includes an expansion of that state's assault weapons ban, background checks on all gun purchases, a ban on the sale of high-capacity magazines, and a requirement you have to be certified the way a gun owner is if you want to buy ammunition for a gun. this thing is through the senate now. it is being debated right this second in the connecticut house, where it is also expected to pass. pro gun protesters flooded the state capitol chanting "just say no." they raised their voices and they lost this particular side of the debate, it's the way this country works. you make your case, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. that is the way that it worked in connecticut today with this bipartisan, huge vote. bipartisan overhaul of that state's gun laws following the massacre at sandy hook elementary school, which, of course, is in connecticut. president obama traveled to colorado, a state itself that passed a broad set of safety legislation last month. the president today in colorado talked about what has been the essential
there in connecticut? first if you're like me, you thought of the little kids and the fear, terror, the horror of those nightmare seconds. the last those kids would ever know. second, you thought of the ferocious firing of bullets. all these bullets flying from one person's hand. all that death coming in that hard barrage. what kind of gun did this guy have? 27 people, 20 little kids, blown to kingdom come in a moment of hideous mass murder. this evening the president is up in connecticut trying manfully to resurrect that first human parental reaction of ours, caring for those lost, the caring that this kind of mass killing weapon should not be in the hands of a nut, a murderer on a rampage, someone who wanted this very weapon so he could kill like he was in some house of horrors shooting gallery. this soul dedicated to the nightmare. the question, perhaps, the last question about gun safety, not just now, but for the foreseeable future, is whether the president can redeem this once salvageable good from this horror. can he get the congress to show the guts that those teachers showed when they stood up
and that the united states will step in preemptively with action. the state of connecticut has become the latest state to amend their arms. will our children be safe? wayne lapierre joins us with answers. and the state of texas is on full alert seeking those who married a texas exit attorney and his wife tonight. attorneys evangeline gomez and brian siber join us with an analysis. honow the continuing, escalating north korea nuclear threats against united states. we are joined by judith miller. i want to begin with a very simple question. the state department was as firm and unambiguous as i have heard in recent memory. what is your judgment? >> our posture is to back away from what we have been doing for the past week since the provocations began. and to turn increasingly toward china and diplomacy and toward an ability to thwart miscalculation on north korea or south korea or japan. lou: is almost inconceivable we have not been working with the chinese government to try to suppress whatever instincts are grinding kim jong-un right now in these crazy threats against the united states. are you saying

"washington journal." host: chris cillizza is our guest from "the washington post." thanks for being here this morning. guest: i apologize for being slightly late. host: we're glad to have have you here. this is from this morning -- the senate is getting a house makeover. is the senate becoming more like the house? and what does that mean? guest: almost half of the senate, 48 members of the senate, 26 democrats, 22 republicans, are former house members. not terribly surprising. and make sense, but is going high number. second, the most important statistic as you have a huge number of people who have spent basically one term or less in the senate. so this is the wave of the senate, and that is not have we do things. of do not have the sort institutional wisd

of connecticut. (bell tolls) >> narrator: a week after adam lanza massacred 20 children and six adults at sandy hook elementary school, church bells tolled across the state. memorials were erected to the 26 victims. president obama read out 26 names. but there was a 27th person murdered that day-- the gunman's mother, nancy lanza. >> nancy lanza is the person adam was closest to in the world. she was the first person he killed. he shot her four times in the head while she was in bed, and then he went off to sandy hook elementachool. if we can begin to understand adam's relationship with nancy, we probably can begin to understand adam. >> one of the things that josh and i talked about early on when we were given this assignment is the fact that it didn't seem like nancy was ever really mentioned as a victim in this case. we had heard a lot of different things about her through other news outlets. we weren't even sure if they were true. we come to find out later that some of them weren't. >> we knew there was some diagnosis, some... deficit, some social deficiency, and how that complicated their
reports," connecticut takes a stand. just moments ago, governor dann malloy signs one of the toughest gun safety laws in the nation in a state still reeling from the newtown tragedy. >> we have come together in a way that relatively few places in our nation have demonstrated an ability to do. in some senses, i hope that this is an example to the rest of the nation. certainly to our leaders in washington, who seem so deeply divided about an issue such as universal background checks, where the country is not divided itself. >> connecticut acts as president obama is out west today, trying to pressure congress to act. >> this is not easy. and i'll be blunt, a lot of members of congress, this is tough for them. because those who are opposed to any form of legislation, legislation affecting guns, they're very well organized and they're very well financed. but it can be done if enough voices are heard. >> joining me this hour, mark kelly, who with his wife, former congresswoman, gabrielle giffords, has become a leading voice for tighter gun laws across the nation. >>> countering the threats, the
of connecticut and the unit the nations today furthering assault on the second amendment. a bipartisan group of connecticut lawmakers drafted a proposal that would be one of the toughest gun laws in the nation if it is signed into law. the united nations overwhelmingly approving the global arms trade treaty, and international agreement that threatens the second amendment rights of all american citizens. we begin tonight in connecticut where the draft legislation would add more than 100 types of guns to the state's list of banned so-called assault weapons. it would limit the capacity of magazines to ten rounds. law-abiding owners of the newly bannedded give ups and magazines would be forced to register the equipment with the state of connecticut. that proposal calls for universal background checks for all weapon sales while creating the nation's first statewide dangerous weapon offender's registry. at the united nations, the global arms trade treaty passed calling for all nations involved to keep records of all arms transfers and suggests these records include information of end user ors priv
, controversy in connecticut and could it happen where you live? first from fox this tuesday night somebody is killing people in charge of keeping us safe. investigators are looking for links among the murders of three different law men in two different states. this past weekend police in texas say they found kaufman county district attorney mike mcclelland and his wife shot dead in their home outside dallas. two months ago somebody gunned down mcclelland's assistant d.a. that was the same day the feds announced mcclelland's office was working on a case against the aryan brotherhood, a white supremacist group. investigators say a member of a white pressroom supremacist prison gang killed the head of colorado's prison system two weeks ago. and as it turns out the suspect should not have been on the streets in the first place. officials say evan ebil got out of prison early because of a paperwork mistake. more on that in a moment. police say ebil died in a shootout with cops in texas about 100 miles from coffman where somebody killed the other two prosecutors. investigators tell us it's too s
back home in connecticut a lot of people talking about the right to bear arms as an unalienable right or god-given right. the constitution makes no such claim. a phrase we know very well. we hold these truths to be self evident. created equal. the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. liberty is not just about having any gun you want, anytime you want it. causes you about -- to be right about that individual violence. -- we are talking about those kids being trapped by an assault-wielding weapons madman. what kind of a liberty does a kid up the street from here who fears for his like every time he wants to walk to the corner store after school? that is not the kind of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that our forefathers talked about. to what degree are the liberties really infringed upon if we suggest there is a handful of weapons that are too dangerous to own? just saying we need to reload the automatic weapon after 10 bullets rather than 30, how greatly to we really risk hearing it when we so moderately restrained the size of the legally purchasable clip?
the way to the supreme court that said because connecticut said individual city administrators would decide whether valid program was for religious organizations to allow them onto the streets they say that allows too much discretion and they applied for the first time part of the first amendment as the state of connecticut's it to overturn their lot to zero allow city officials as they saw fit it. >> does that lead to any nationwide cases? >> if they're real big movement cames when jehovah's witnesses challenge laws requiring school children to salute the flag and say the pledge of allegiance. at first they lost. that was a big case in 1940 that got a lot of attention and after that violence broke out and three years later the supreme court changed its mind and said we may be interested and patriotism and unity but not by beating of schoolchildren >>host: so today most class's begin with the pledge. >> so can a child said legally? >> there constitutionally protected in there right not to have to say the pledge of allegiance. >> the spirit of the law. who are in the people in your bo

connecticut to salute one more state taking the lead in enacting tough gun safety measures. that means now we have new york colorado, connecticut, and maryland actually. last week came the latest to do what the people want on gun safety measures. congress comes back in town today the big question is: will they have enough backbone to act and take on the nra like the states have done. in other news, president obama has apologized to california attorney general pamela harris for telling the world not only what a good job she is doing but how good looking she is. a pill over the counter without a prescription and cnn is talking about bringing back crossfire. i am tanned, rested and ready. we will tell you why on current tv. >> you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. just be grateful current tv does not come in smellivision. the sweatshirt is nice and all but i could use a golden lasso.

in hartford, connecticut. the president delivered a pointed and powerful speech. he was speaking in a room that greeted him with some of the boisterousness of a campaign rally, but it was a room that the president spoke to with some seriousness. and at one point with an edge that bordered almost on angry. >> in the wake of a tragedy, you'd think this would not be a heavy lift. and yet some folks back in washington are already floating the idea that they may use political stunts to prevent votes on any of these reforms. think about that. they're not just saying they'll vote no on ideas that almost all americans support, they're saying they'll do everything they can to even prevent any votes on these provisions. they're saying your opinion doesn't matter. and that's not right. that is not right. we need a vote. >> we want a vote, we want a vote. we want a vote. we want a vote. we want a vote. we want a vote. >> we need a vote. >> we want a vote. we want a vote. we want a vote. >> now, i've also heard some in the washington press suggest that what happens to gun violence legislation in congre
, connecticut today, it happened. it was a long time coming and in the most important way, it was too late but it did finally happen today. >> this is a profoundly emotional day, i think for everyone in this room and everyone watching what is transpiring today in the state of connecticut. we have come together in a way that relatively few places in our nation have demonstrated an ability to do. in some senses, i hope this is an example to the rest of the nation. certainly, to our leaders in washington, who seem so deeply divided about an issue such as universal background checks, where the country is not divided itself. when 92% of americans agree that every gun sale should be subject to a background check, there is no excuse for representatives or senators who don't come to the assistance of those they are elected to represent. >> connect governor dan malloy this afternoon signing into law gun reforms for the state of connecticut restrictions on capacity magazines and assault weapons and the criminally ill having access to guns. background for all purchases and backgrounds for bullets. go
in connecticut, but the economic impact of stricter gun laws in response to the shootings at sandy hook elementary has some gun manufactures thinking about packing up and moving their businesses else where. deb feyerick has more. >> reporter: when it comes to shooting competitions, this is one of the most popular sporting rifles in america. 34-year-old mark owns not only the semi automatic rifle, but owns the company that makes it. >> how many do you sell per month? >> about 6,000 rifles per month. >> reporter: the connectic connecticut-based companies and poised to bring in an estimated $80 million in sales this year. he says about $4 million of that in connecticut. all that is now in jeopardy. connecticut's strict new gun laws ban the sale of these firearms in the very state where they're made. >> have you thought about possibility of losing connecticut? >> i've considered it more than i ever have. the offers out there are very, very tempting. they're offering everyting from building you a factory, helping you incur moving costs, tax incei investments and incentives. >> there's a huge
the week when a new gun control bill is brought up to the floor. in connecticut an impassioned president obama kept up the pressure for up and down votes including universal background checks, ban on assault weapons and limits on multi round ammunition clips. >> this is not about me. this is not about politics. this is about doing the right thing for all the families who are here that have been torn apart by gun violence. it's about them and all the families going forward so we can prevent this from happening again. >> john: mr. obama met with members of 11 families who lost children in the sandy hook school, and then gift them a lift--thingave--thengave them a lift when it was done. >>> nicole hawkly lost her 6-year-old son in the hooting and in the 60 minutes reported last night this was her message to state legislators. >> they need to not just look us in the eyes but our children and the lost ones, and see those faces, see what's gone, and remember this isn't just about political parties. this isn't just about careers. this is about people. this is about making change to save people.
